It’s amazing how Greg Sheridan of The Australian can make mountains out of Howard’s mole hill-like creations. Sheridan’s latest garbage, ‘Former foe now close ally’, attempts to paint Howard as the great Australian statesman that has mended the fence that was destroyed during the Second World War if we are to believe this patronizing rubbish: “It is a tribute to the pragmatism and vision of both leaders that the two nations, bitter enemies in the Pacific war, have grown so close since the end of World War II.”
The war ended over 60 years ago in the first half of the last century! We’ve been trading and dealing with Japan for yonks and the Australian military have been working with the Japanese military in Iraq for a year or so now. What’s the big deal now that we have a treaty with the Japanese? Would Sheridan have come out with same nonsense had Australia signed a treaty with modern Germany?
I guess Sheridan is just big-noting his lying mate Howard with a few accolades in order to help him along in the lead-up to the next election when the Lying Little Tyrant is going to need all the help he can get just to hang on to his own seat let alone government.
